Material – Cotton

There is honestly nothing better than pure cotton when it comes to the fabric of your summer dress. Cotton is so light and breathable that it keeps you feeling cool all day long. So if you are thinking about buying a summer dress then cotton should be your go to fabric especially if it’s a day dress.

Style – Flowy

I love love flowy summer dresses. The best part about a flowy summer dress is that you can style it in different ways. You could put a belt and make it fitted or you could leave it flowy and comfortable.

Print & Color – Florals & Light Colors

Summer florals are by far the most popular. However this season gingham has also been a big hit! When it comes to colors try picking out lighter shades – whites, pinks, light blue, yellow etc. Lighter colors keep you cool and look fabulous reflecting the sun!

Neckline – Off Shoulders

Off shoulder styles are everywhere! Summer is a great time to get a lovely tan and this could be one of the best ways to get a fabulous collar-bone tan 🙂 I also personally like off shoulder styles, they are cute with a hint of sexy.

Length – Up to you!

This one is really up to you. You can go short or long! I usually like short dresses but that’s because I am tiny and love showing off my legs when I get the chance 🙂

Styling It – Flats + Crossbody + Hat + Earrings that pop!

It took me a very long time to accept that I wasn’t growing any more 😉 I say that because I have finally accepted it’s ok to wear flats even if you’re short. Summer days are about comfort and fun. Wear items that allow you to walk as much as you like and have fun! The best shoes for that are flats or something with a teeny tiny wedge heel. Want to carry your little items with you? Then a crossbody is the way to go! Don’t forget a hat to protect you from the sun. My fav tip of all is a pair of fabulously colorful and fun earrings to finish your look!

    Summer has always been a season of dresses for me. It is finally warm enough to discard thick boots and woolly jumpers. We can put on a lovely dress and feel the hot sun caressing our bare skin. And dresses come in so many shapes and colours. Long and short, flowery and flowy – one has so many options to choose from.

    Yours is a perfect summer dress! I love the colour – blue is my favourite. And the cut is very feminine. 🙂

    Your belt is very interesting. I like the dress belted. It accentuates your small waist. Thanks for joining the Ageless Style Linkup party.
